Santa Barbara Business College graduates first MBA

Santa Barbara Business College graduated its first Master of Business Administration student as part of its 2013 winter class graduation ceremony at the Santa Maria Fairpark’s convention center on Jan. 25.

Brittanny Pabon gave the camera a peace sign during the Santa Barbara Business College graduation ceremony held in Santa Maria on Jan. 25. Pabon received her diploma in the criminal justice associate’s degree program. She started her criminal justice career in loss preventions at a local casino.

MBA graduate Chris Wright said she was excited for what the degree can do for her future. She went back to school after being in the workforce, and she even held a fulltime job while attending classes.

“Going back to school to earn my degree was one of the best decisions I’ve made,” Wright said. “My husband and my children are very proud of me. If I can do it, so can you.”

Wright graduated alongside 59 other students who received associate’s degrees in business administration, criminal justice, medical assisting, paralegal studies, pharmacy technology, and more.
